  • 8.0.Very good

    good for a couple nights' stay

    would give it a 3 to 4 rating as the bathroom was pretty tight and tub shower rather than shower stall but was clean and the room was a little dark; it did have wood floors rather than carpet (other than an area carpet) in main area which was a nice upgrade; the kitchen was small/tight but functional; the room was clean and well stocked; the staff were very friendly and accommodating and you could see (and smell) that constant cleaning was taking place; location was perfect; walkable with grocery stores nearby; parking at hotel was easy; a bit busy of an intersection so traffic/sirens/walk signals were a little disruptive but we'd try a room elsewhere in same hotel next time; overall, was comfortable enough, clean, and great staff

    Nice Hotel. Great Staff. Nice location to take in all that Sidney has to offer. Pet Friendly. Though the cost could be a bit more competitive price wise.

    Staff at reception area were friendly and extremely helpful. Happily assisted us with booking tours and even got us a discount! Searched up points of interest for us to check out and always made sure to check that we were being well served. Place was super clean during these COVID times.

    Emerald Isle stay

    I was late getting in. The bed was a welcomed item! I slept well and everything I needed was in the room. It was very comfortably appointed.

    Close to the airport, but walkable to downtown Sidney. Quiet location, a little difficult to find entrance into parking lot. Restaurant next door for breakfast and lunch, but various types of eaterys, are all within walking distance. Continuous coffee and water available in the lobby, plus coffee machine in room. Friendly, welcoming staff. Clean, well appointed rooms.
